president joe biden accurately calling obama's health-care the big frigging deal i suggested -- we are on c-span -- i suggested to his chief of staff the stimulus was just as big, bigger. we probably did more in that bill than the clinton administration did in eight years one adviser told me. critics often argue that the new deal left behind iconic monuments, the hoover dam, skyline drive, fort knox, the stimulus will leave a legacy of sewage plants, repaved pot holes and state employees who would have been laid off without it. even if recovery act architect feels -- fear that like winston churchill -- in reality it is creating its own icons. the world's largest wind farm. half a dozen of the largest solar farms, 0 energy border stations, state of the are battery factories, eco friendly coast guard headquarters on washington hillside. it is restoring old icons like the brooklyn bridge and the bay bridge. the beloved everglades. seattle's pike place market and the staten island ferry terminal. but its main legacy like the new deal will be changed. that is also the main theme. it is not a new

probably the biggest hire in the campaign. joe biden in august. and i remember when i learned that he picked joe biden. i was like really, joe biden. this is not -- this is a not-so -- guy. 30 years in the senate. he's almost seemed like everyone we were campaigning against. let me tell you that joe biden when he came in. i couldn't have liked him more. he was everything that you would think. he was no drama. the most unassuming interest to the campaign that we could have had for a guy who had the senate trappings. you almost didn't notice he came in. respect everyone. i think that's obvious, and there isn't a more bottom up kind of go than joe biden. he integrated so well in to the campaign. he was part of us, you heard how, you know, there were divisions within the mccain twain between mccain camp and the palin camp. we didn't have a camp. right, you could see the value of that kind of chemistry him coming inspect. had he came in, he actually -- he wanted to meet the staff. and he said you could tell how excited he was. he said, you know, -- you know, you guys are the ones that kick
